Merinda is an Interior Designer
As an industry elder, Merinda still draws by hand, carries a tape measure and values the importance of relationships. She began her career in Commercial Design Studios in Melbourne, Australia. After 10 years of studio style osmosis, she stepped away from the commercial world of Design to start her own practice. With 17 years of solo stewardship and after much soul searching, studying and reflecting, a new brand of Interior Design has been born.
Merinda is a Yogi
Merinda is a student of yogic philosophy and practice. With 700 hours of yoga teacher training and countless more in meditation, she cannot separate her work from her devotion to the practice of yoga. To Merinda, there is not one without the other. They are indelibly linked and as one have delivered wholeness and congruence to every aspect of her life.
Merinda is a Change Maven
Most of all, Merinda dreams big, loves large and believes each of us has the capacity to change the world. Her soul purpose is to teach us how to transform the way we live in our homes. She believes in the power of the Householder. Her desire is for each of us to connect to our innermost values and express them outwardly. Her passion is to inspire the way we live, love, create and consume at home. Merinda believes, passionately, that every Householder is a Change Maven.
I believe in the Collective.
Our Collective is a living workshop of souls who share the same vision. We care about each other and the world around us. My most intimate physical space is home. It’s yours too. Those of us lucky enough to have one, should cherish it. Home is a stage for self expression, a canvas where we paint our lives. A place for our most intimate moments. Where we retreat to replenish and recharge. Home is where we disconnect to connect, reconnect to reinvigorate.
Creative is a C-word
Conscious, courageous, contiguous, collaborative, celebration, curation, connection, congruent, conceptual, charismatic, coveted, crucial, cultivated, characteristic, creed… Creative.. It is part of who I am. It is part of who you are. It is unavoidable, accessible, unique and yours for the taking and giving.
I facilitate Creation
The power we have to Create is boundless. Every day we Create own reality. How we Create our home is a direct reflection of who we are. Our home is a mirror of our deepest sense of ourselves. Home is the physical manifestation of what matters most: our values, our relationships, our rituals. It is our shelter, our safe place, our sanctuary. We have the power to express ourselves fully in the way we dwell at home. We must pour out the door filled up and ready to take on the world.
